If you are enrolled in a distance course at Malmö University, you are welcome to contact the library if you want to borrow books or search for information. If you live outside Malmö, we can deliver books to your home address. You can also make an appointment for a search consultation and get help via video conference (Zoom).
Get a library card
To be able to borrow and request books, you need a library card. If you already have a multicard, it works as your library card, but remember to register as a distance student at the library or through the form below.
Distance students can order a library card online and have it delivered to their home address. This does not apply to students living outside of Sweden.
If you live outside Malmö we send the books you want to borrow to your home address. The loan period is normally three weeks, but when we send you the books you get a four-week loan period to compensate for the shipping.
Make a request by clicking on “Place a hold”. Log in with your first name and library card number. It does not matter which library you choose as a pickup location. If you are registered as a distance student at Malmö University, the book will be automatically delivered to you when it is returned to the library.
At “My loans” you can view your reservations and delete them if you no longer need them.
If you are in Malmö you can return your library books at Orkanen library between 08:00 and 20:00. You need a multicard and PIN code to access the building.
Return books by mail
You can also return your library loans by mail. You pay postage yourself. You remain responsible for your loans until they reach the library.
Please note: Keep in mind that if your package weighs more than 2 kg, you need to mail it to our delivery address instead of our postal address. Also, remember to mail the books a few days before the return date as they are registered as returned only when they arrive at the library.
Do you need help searching for information for your paper or project work? As a student at the university, you can book a one-hour search consultation where we help you with searching for information on your subject. If you are not located in Malmö you can choose to receive help via Skype.
